Passionate Pursuit, Passionate Praise: Stories of What God Has Done

Passionate Pursuit last Thursday was incredible – sweet friends, an island buffet, an inspiring drama, beautiful music and an encouraging word. But the best part was the presence of the Holy Spirit during the Moment in Concert! The schedule ended up slightly different than what I had planned for the evening.

In June of this year, the Holy Spirit began speaking to me about starting the Passionate Pursuit season off right – with an evening of worship and... read more

An Evening That Will Change Your Life…

Addressing the men of Athens on Mars Hill, the apostle Paul tells us exactly why: “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined... read more
